How do you process the Minerals?
Granulated marble is mixed with our binder and applied in a manual way by certified artisans. The process then allows, if desired, subsequent processing to obtain the desired surface characteristics.
Which Minerals can be used?
Potentially MarbleSkin™ allows the use of any Mineral existent in Nature. In fact, today we have used numerous types of Marbles, Quartz and other types of common stones. If you would like to use a particular type of stone, tell us: we will evaluate the possibility of testing its performance. Alternatively, tell us about the features you are searching for, such as color or a specific aesthetic or performance requirement: our experts will tell you the most suitable Mineral.
What kind of binder do you use to conglomerate Minerals?
Our binder does not contain resins: it is natural, water based; it is recyclable and environmentally friendly.
It is the result of our internal R&D and, given its remarkable characteristics, we patented it.
Why use MarbleSkin™ instead of slabs or sculpted blocks?
MarbleSkin™ is very thin, starting from 1.5 mm. It covers every size and shape, as long as it can be reached by our craftsman’s hand: even curved and complex surfaces, with continuity.
Minerals can be mixed and, together with the application process, we can get countless aesthetic combinations.
The process doesn’t create waste, and moreover, it gives new life to the Minerals discarded by other processes.
On which materials can the finish be applied?
The coated object can be our printed stone or different materials such as glass, plastic, wood, metal, plexiglass, polystyrene, … contact us: if the material of the object you want to cover is not listed, we will test it.
What kind of performance does the finish offer?
At the current level of development of the binder and the process, the technical characteristics and mechanical properties of the finish depend largely on the base material chosen. However, we intend to look forward: tell us about your specific need, we have several R&D projects aimed at developing additional performance qualities.
What is the resistance of the finishes over time?
MarbleSkin™ is a relatively young process: for several years the binder we use has been subjected to R&D (and still is). Since then, the works carried out (and the numerous tests, both internal and at the University of Padua) underline MarbleSkin™ resistance to time, wear and typical continental and Mediterranean climatic conditions.
How can I get a quote?
Fill out the form or send us an email with the following material:
- Some images or photos in which shape, dimensions and proportions of the surface to be covered are clearly visible, from all sides. If available, the digital model of the object is ideal.
- The description or some representative images of the desired external look, for example type of mineral, color, texture (smooth, shiny, rough, …).
- Further indications: the surface will be subject to stresses, movements, high temperatures, frictions. Sometimes, the overall project description can help us identify any performance needs.
With this information we will formulate the feasibility analysis and will contact you within a few days.
